  • Birkin North America Press Release

    Fellow Seven Enthusiasts:

    Before the rumour mill cranks up, I thought I'd share with you a press release issued late last week by Birkin North America.

    Stay tuned for more exciting (to us anyway!) news in the days to come.

    Happy Blatting,
    Woody Harris

    For Immediate Release

    Dateline Chicago, IL and San Francisco, CA 10/22/04

    Woody Harris, President of Birkin North America, Inc announced today that Birkin North America has elected to cease functioning as the sole importer of Birkin cars, the South African built Lotus Seven replica.

    In making the announcement, Mr. Harris stressed that both he and Mr. Dennis Tobin (co-principle and treasurer of Birkin North America) remain committed to the cars and their current customer base.

    Mr. Harris and Mr. Tobin will continue the co-operative effort they have enjoyed in the past by serving the wider Sevens community through their parent companies: Motoring Specialists, Inc., Vacaville, CA and La Fox Factory Auto, South Elgin, IL respectively.

    Mr. Harris and Mr. Tobin look forward to assisting their successors in Birkin importation when they are announced.

    Very sorry to see this! Everything I have heard about your operation is really good. The article in SportsCar showed a great way to get people into sevening and excellent care from the distributor. I've also been impressed by your helping to get 7s together with NASA. Gert also says nothing but positive things about your operation. Hopefully we have not heard "the last" from you. Good luck in your future endeavors :!: 8)

      I believe that Woody does intend to stay very active in the sevens arena, he's just transitioning out of his role as a Birkin importer/dealer.
